Music Industry is in Deep S**t

I’ve posted the news that Universal had successfully hold down Nine Inch Nails’ remix site. But apparently, 2 days after that, NIN launched their own remix site. Cool.

Trent Reznor also posted a link to New York Magazine’s Vulture which discovers that Music Industry executives is so stupid (it’s my term, i am sorry but i really think so), that they have not yet consider the threat of the new technology which impact their recent (and continuous) downfall. Check out this excerpt:

“There’s no one in the record industry that’s a technologist,” Morris explains. “That’s a misconception writers make all the time, that the record industry missed this. They didn’t. They just didn’t know what to do. It’s like if you were suddenly asked to operate on your dog to remove his kidney. What would you do?”

Personally, I would hire a vet. But to Morris, even that wasn’t an option. “We didn’t know who to hire,” he says, becoming more agitated. “I wouldn’t be able to recognize a good technology person — anyone with a good bullshit story would have gotten past me.”

Yes, they haven’t even try to fight this free music things. Whoa, lol.
